2 names/profiles for the same person!

I have a slight concern regarding the contribution options for titles, people and credits. I have accidently created 2 of the same person, originally wanting to have an all in one credit, I unintentionally created one with a middle name and one without (Ahmet Mert Karasarliolgu and Ahmet Karasarlioglu). I know that IMDb will indeed update this info within the next 14 days but I'm curious as to whether the second non-existing credit will still have an active profile. I'm not a Pro member, but I will be once all my movie history on the profile created is updated and ready. If it's at all possible, I would like to request the one with the middle name be deleted and for the "Director" credit to be registered to the other one.

The way to request edits is to use the yellow "edit page' button on the page needing fixing and follow directions to "merge" the two pages. Note that credits, regardless of the name on the page need to reflect on screen credits (with "as" if different from name page).http://www.imdb.com/help/show_leaf?na...

No IMDb Pro account is needed. Any registered user can do it.
